Chill Out!

When I saw this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast I immediately thought of my new 'Tude stamps from Stamping Bella. I decided to use Amplee'Tude on this card cause I felt like some ice cream and this saved the calories. I thought it was perfect to pair with my Chill Out sentiment too.

I started by stamping AmpleeTude with Memento Tuxedo Black then I cut her out with rectangle Nestabilities. I coloured most of her with copics. Oh, how I long to have luscious locks like hers! Every time I try to let my hair grow, it gets to just below my shoulders then I chop it off...I never seem to get past that point...not even as a little girl...sigh. Sorry, back to the card. I pulled out my fun Bella Blvd. Swing Into Spring papers for this card and paper pieced her dress. I used a pink Atyou Spica glitter pen for her headband and I popped the ice cream cone for some dimension. (that's just for you, Emily W.)   :)

I started with a white card base then added some chocolate and baja blue, which I sewed together. I used my SU eyelet border punch on the strip of chocolate just below the yummy pink velvet ribbon (I thought it was luscious ribbon, like her hair...giggle!).  I finished it off with a couple of Primas and some Bella Bonbons in fuschia and burnt honey. 

Don't forget to check out Bloggabella on Friday for this week's Bellarific creations. 

Thanks for stopping by!
